Ask any girl who loves wearing high heels and she will will happily recite to you a love hate story as long and complex as Gone With the Wind. As fabulous as the perfect pair of Louboutins can look , wearing high heels for long periods of time can seem like a cruel punishment on many occasions.
How does one deal with it ,however , when the job or occasion demands it or you just simply want to look fab? Worry not fair damsels in distress , we come swooping in as your knights in patent leather armour , ready to give you the best tricks to take the sharpness out of your stiletto.
1.Wear the right size : This one is the gospel truth. Never buy heels that are even half a size smaller as they will end up cutting and chaffing your feet. Same goes for bigger sizes as well , so make sure ur heels fit just right.
2. Invest in gel inserts : These provide a cushion for your tired feet and are the perfect way to literally take the pressure off.
3.Adopt the right gait and posture : Walk heel to toe and avoid slouching to prevent putting unnecessary pressure on your feet and causing painful bruises.
4.Sandpaper the bottom : Smooth soles can cause you to lose balance and slip , so sandpapered shoes can help improve the grip and go easy on the feet.
5.Tape your third and fourth finger together : This is on the feet of course , and it works like a charm every single time . Reducing the pressure on the ball of your feet , this one helps you dance the night away , pain free.
6.Balm your feet right up : From lip balm to vaseline , put a protective layer on the heels of your feet to keep blisters away.
7.Open out your shoes : Make a temporary shoe last by filling a zip lock with water and inserting in your shoe. Freeze overnight to stretch out the shoe and make it more comfy for your tired peepers.
8.Invest in some heel grips : These give you a better hold and prevent scarring the back of your feet.
